Even Ladies' Day has a faller at Grand National meeting

Freezing temperatures and cloudy skies failed to steal the thunder of the fashionistas as Ladies' Day got under way at the Grand National meeting.

An estimated 50,000 people were expected at Aintree Racecourse for the second day of racing, which has become almost secondary to the breathtaking range of outfits on display.

Ladies' Day is a favourite with the fairer sex, who have become known for pulling out all the stops in the fashion stakes.
